Women’s Health

Are you suffering from pregnancy related back or neck pain? Do you experience incontinence of urine or stool? Do you experience frequent urination (more than ever 2-3 hours) on a regular basis? Have you been experiencing pain with sitting that just won’t subside? Are you experiencing pelvic pain or is intercourse painful? Do you have constipation or painful bowel movements? If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, then Universus Physical Therapy may be right for you.

We offer comprehensive pelvic floor rehabilitation services that are delivered by a highly specialized physical therapist in each of the following areas:

  • Urinary Incontinence: There are several types of urinary incontinence including stress, urge, overflow, and mixed. All have different causes, but can be improved with the conservative measures that we offer including biofeedback, pelvic floor strengthening, and behavior modification.
  • Bowel Incontinence: In many cases, weakening of the pelvic floor muscles is the most common cause. You will learn how to retrain your muscles for effective bowel movements and learn how to strengthen weak musculature.
  • Colo-Rectal Disorders: We offer treatment for coccydynia, non-relaxing puborectalis, constipation, anismus, proctalgia fugax, and general anal pain syndromes.
  • Pelvic Pain: Too many women go undiagnosed and untreated with pelvic pain syndromes including vulvar vestibulitis, vulvodynia, dyspareunia, and interstitial cystitis. Our specialists utilize internal manual techniques to decrease pelvic floor hypertonus, biofeedback to encourage relaxation, and a variety of self-care techniques to speed the progression toward recovery. We can help you lower your pain and return to improved function.
  • Prenatal and Postpartum: At Universus Physical Therapy, we believe that pregnancy should be a time of happiness and well-being. We can help you decrease pregnancy-related pain and prepare you for a healthy labor and delivery.

If you have a condition that is not listed here, but you are seeking conservative measures please call to find out if intervention by a physical therapist may be beneficial. Contact us Monday through Saturday at 631.533.2888
